N-Dubz have sworn off making any more reality TV shows, claiming it would make them “look cheap”.
North London hip-hop trio Dappy, Tulisa and Fazer – who are trying to break America after being signed by Def Jam records – appeared in the six-part fly-on-the-wall documentary Being N-Dubz for 4Music, but Dappy told Star magazine he thought only failing musicians do reality shows.
He said: “Some people do reality TV shows when their music is slowing down, it’s not good, man, it’s not right for a musician – it makes us look cheap.”
Fazer agreed that doing more shows might take the focus away from the band’s music.
He said: “We don’t want to be known for our TV shows because we didn’t come into the industry doing that and I don’t want to be famous for doing a number two in someone’s house that I ain’t bought yet, I’d rather be famous for doing a sick rap or a great record.”
